It's been a year or so since our last CPK lunch/dinner. I wonder why it took us that long to go back. Maybe because we were really on uber-stingy mode since the start of this year.

California Pizza Kitchen opened up another branch on Greenbelt 5 which is a very good choice because it's really accessible to weekend shoppers. Plus, the smoking area view is really nice as well, I'll post pics on another entry. Let's go to the food first.

Our orders:

Mediterranean Salad (P355)
with Add-on Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breast (P175)

Nice clean crispy veggies. I like the added chicken breast as well, it adds a little more flavor to the salad. You can ask for additional bbq sauce for the chicken as well.

Four Cheese Pizza (P525)

Really yummy. Surprisingly, we all liked this one. We were supposed to order the Five-Cheese pizza but mistakenly ordered this instead. We were not disapppointed at all.

We also ordered Fettuccine with Garlic Cream Sauce (P365) with add-on Sauteed Mushrooms (P275) but I was not able to take a pic of it because it was immediately eaten. ;P

We were all full right away and I blame the bottomless Iced Tea...

I shall be back again.. and this time I swear I won't wait for more than a year again. :)

I've never dined there yet. Ever. Seems I'm missing a lot. I just had a pizza yesterday and your pix made me crave for more again.

ako naman, i've eaten at CPK only once and never eaten again. for me kasi ,it's not worth the money. in short, either it's the price is not worth the food or kuripot ako. he! he!

I love CPK although I haven't been to a branch for several years now. The only reason is that there isn't any that was within driving distance of my place. :-(

Glad to know that they now have one in Greenbelt 5. I'll check it out the next time I'm in Manila. Take care! :-)

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…


Who knows how to play Sungka?

What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)
